    As a future Cuban bride, I am definately concerned... CNN.com says that Varadero has recently evacuated 9000 tourists, but they make no mention of evacuation of the locals. My dear friend Maureen is due to have her first child any day now, and lives in downtown Varadero. I am worried for thier safety.

    I am also concerned about the devastation that IKE could cause to the Varadero area, and to our pending wedding.

    It has been three years since KATRINA and the city still isn't back to normal....

    Just worried, that's all; and praying for our dear Cuban friends.

        I am with you Amarillis...the people are really get hit and it is hard to get information about what is going on specifically in the areas.

        I am also worried about the resorts that many brides are using to get married in the next few months. I know that resorts usually spring back quite quick but I feel horrible for those brides getting married in Cuba in the next few months...

        If anyone has been down there since the Hurricanes let us know what it looks like and what is happening...

          I was watching this on the news this morning too. Has anyone heard anything about Holguin?

          Man, I really hope the people there are okay.

                I am always checking the reports and possible tracks of the storms. Oh this freaks me out to no end. I just dislike hurricanes in general for everyone with the upheaval of things and how lives change in most of these countries... they will always be devistating to me.

                    I'm a little concerned even though we're not getting married util october 2009

                    We're heading down the week of the 24th to 31st. It's still technically hurricane season. I'm keeping track of the weather and hoping it's good this October and that this year's weather will be a predicter for next year's weather.

                      it doesn't really work that way. you can have a huge hurricane this oct & nothing next year. there are charts online that show the stats on hurricanes. I looked at those carefully before I picked my date. June is the start of the season, but there were no instances of hurricanes in the area in june.

                      season runs june-nov, but their are definitly peak months. you also want to think about being late in hurrcane season or right after it, because it can take a while to recover. the resorts do usually clean up fast as long as it wasn't a huge storm.
